A to Z Blog Challenge -- D -- The Devil from THE DEVIL YOU KNOW

Welcome to Day 4 of this year's April blog event -- the A to Z Blog Challenge!

Today it is my pleasure to introduce you to my good friend Shawna Romkey, a fellow member of my writers' group Romance Writers of Atlantic Canada.

Shawna writes paranormal and fantasy novels for the YA (young adult) and new adult reader. That can be a bit of a misnomer, however, as I'm in my early 50s and I love her series.

Today we're taking a look at Shawna's Speak of the Devil series, which just wrapped up this past February with THE DEVIL YOU KNOW

I'm a massive fan of her first two books in the series, and I'm currently checking my mailbox because I recently ordered a paperback copy of THE DEVIL YOU KNOW for my keeper shelf, as I'm more of a page-turning kind of gal, rather than a swipe, swipe kind of ereader.

This series has a cast of Midwestern high schoolers who thought their biggest problems had to do with losing their friends in a fatal car accident -- which, granted, is way up there on the coping scale.

However, the human characters are only part of the crowd, which include hunky, broody angels, the ancient female powerhouse Lilith and of course, the Devil himself.

Book 1 lets loose an earth-bound battle between heaven and hell, while Book 2 takes us straight to the original Dark Side.

THE DEVIL YOU KNOW brings main character Lily's living on borrowed time thing back to the table as she battles to save her warrior angel boyfriend Luc before that pesky Devil decides to renovate God's earthly handiwork and wipe out all of humanity.

If you need the stakes to be higher than whether Lily's senior prom dress is the same exact one as the homecoming queen's, Shawna's Speak of the Devil series is just what you've been waiting for. If you find yourself wondering why you find a character like the Devil so irresistible, just remind yourself that he's the King of Seduction and go with it.
